TIP F 1710 Replacement of the Sheet Catch Station to SoftTec
Machine Model for Improvement
Description of Improvement
This upgrade from the Technical Improvement Program (TIP) replaces the existing sheet catch station by a new BW Papersystems SoftTec station with manual adjustments.
The existing sheet catch station is working with belts which causes paper markings in the production flow.
The new SoftTec system contains self adjusting catching rolls with a larger diameter in order to ensure a uniform brake force at the complete working width.
There is a significant reduction of “stopper markings” and the machine can perform at approx. 10% higher production speed. The handling of the new sheet catch station is simplified.
As an option the SoftTec station can be equipped with automatic adjustments.
This upgrade usually pays for itself within 6 months.
